A beautiful Spanish island located in the Atlantic Ocean, Lanzarote is one of the seven main Canary Islands and fourth largest in the archipelago. In the year 1993, it was declared a biosphere reserve by UNESCO. Lanzarote is often referred to as the 'Island of Eternal Spring', owing to its subtropical-desert climate. You can witness some awe-inspiring landscapes while exploring this island, which resulted from the massive volcanic eruptions that had occurred in the past. While holidaying on this Spanish island, you'll get to visit the vineyards located in the protected areas and some of the other popular attractions.

These attractions can be explored with the help of savings made by booking your package with Lanzarote holiday deals. One of the most popular tourist attractions on the island is Timanfaya National Park. Nearly a million tourists visit this volcanic park, which is home to several dormant volcanoes and some fascinating landscapes that have been shaped by the volcanic eruptions. You can also find a restaurant designed by the famous architect and sculptor, Cesar Manrique, while exploring this park. This restaurant would give you the chance to enjoy some panoramic views that would truly delight your senses, particularly at sunset.

Many of the Lanzarote holidays all inclusive packages offer include visits to this national park. While in the park, you'll get a feel of how the earth might have appeared during the stages of its formation. There have been many comparisons of Timanfaya with the lunar landscape in the past. Nearly 300 years have passed since this island was rocked by volcanic eruptions between the years 1730 and 1736. Even after so many years, the sand, the fine black volcanic rocks, and the fields of lava have retained their unique appearance. The fact that visitors to this national park are not permitted to walk through the park has also helped in preserving Timanfaya's pristine look.

While exploring this park during your cheap Lanzarote holidays, you'll be taken through these majestic landscapes in coaches that make their way efficiently through the unique terrain. These vehicles stop at the designated points along the route in order to help you enjoy the varied sights and take some impressive snaps. Commentary is often provided in such coaches in the Spanish, English, and German languages. An intriguing narration of the events described by Father Curbelo while witnessing the volcanic eruptions of the 18th century is one of the major highlights of the tour.

No one had died during these eruptions, as the villagers who lived on the island left their homes as well as the island. They had lived on the island for years and were involved in farming and other activities. The most fertile and productive areas on the island were devastated owing to these events and three villages were completely destroyed by the ocean of lava that flowed across the countryside as a result of the eruptions. Even today, the heat beneath the crust of the earth is used by the restaurant to grill meat and fish.
